Reading owner selling up to the Chinese as the club is too costly to run - but will be keeping hold of the hotel & surrounding land.

I'm sure it was mooted when they first took over all they was interested in was the surrounding land and it looks like it is coming true

I didn't know failing the "fit and proper persons test" was possible. Oh well live and learn.

Even Jed McBorey and Lee Power passed it FFS.

Cellino failed it, took the football authorities to court, where the decision was overruled. Essentially it is pretty difficult for anyone to be prevented making a capitalist living, whatever their backstory.

Recently Liam Fox was on a Brexit run trying to drum up a bit of trade with The Phillipines, attempting to woo Rodrigo Duterte, with weasel words about shared values. This is a fella who got elected on a platform of extrajudicial executions of drug dealers and other criminals, personally claiming 3.

I guess a similar platform might get shared values voters in our post Brexit Britain.

Wasn't quite sure about where to put this, explosion outside Dortmund ground. Early reports that Marc Bartra has been injured in the incident.

Apparently near the team coach, which was a long way from the stadium at the time.

Who do we think these clubs are then?

Coventry, Bury, Orient and one other, maybe Port Vale would be my guess.

Hartlepool are almost certainly one of them.

I posted on here back in December about a few clubs close to the line.

Pinched from the Morecambe forum:

Just checked credit ratings of League 2 clubs and there a lot in an awful mess besides us. Many are just crawling from one month to the next.

Anything over 50 is decent. 30-50 isn't great. Under 30 is worrying. Less than 20 and the recommendation is do 'cash transactions only' and is close to going under. Obviously the credit agencies only look at the fundamentals. So Accy's rating is based on past performance and last accounts.

Notts County 0 - winding up order
Crawley Town 0 - winding up order
Mansfield Town 3
Accrington Stanley 5
Newport County 10
Hartlepool 10
Grimsby Town 13
Stevenage 13
Plymouth Argyle 14
Morecambe 19
Leyton Orient 22
Luton Town 24
Carlisle United 42
Cheltenham 43
Wycombe Wanderers 44
Doncaster Rovers 50
Yeovil 59
Crewe Alexandra 60
Cambridge United 64
Exeter City 66
Barnet 69
Portsmouth 75
Blackpool 91

FFS, "Guardians of the Game"? If the League did their job properly in the first place, these shitehawk owners wouldn't be able to run clubs down to that extent. Fucking clowns, they have no shame
